YEEEE HAAAA!

This game essentially pulls you into the "Wild West" world and you feel like a true cowboy. No other western game has the amazing graphics that this game does. You have a lot of freedom to do whatever the heck you want, whether its doing the main missions, playing poker (and cheating!!), or one of my personal favorite pastimes; hunting. You can travel the huge open world and shoot just about any animal you see and skin it (or collect its feathers for birds) for cash. The slow-mo feature is great enabling me to shoot down a whole pack of coyotes and then skin them for some cash. I am a huge fan of Cabela's Hunting games, so I spend a lot of my time going around shooting animals (yea i know I have problems). I haven't played online much as the campaign is highly addictive, but from what I have seen it is also a huge diverse world filled with danger and exploration. The story is great and I am one of those guys that always skips the cutscenes but come on, this is rockstar. The voice actors are great and everything from the game is believable. I can't wait to finish all my finals so I can forget school and submerge my mind in this great western realm. Enjoy what is one of the best games of 2010 thus far...

An invigorating account of the Old West

For those who always dreamed as a kid of herding cattle, gunfights, horseback riding, and just exploring the old west-- Then this game is for you! This is the closest thing to living a western movie as you'll ever get. It has beautiful graphics, gripping storyline, lovable characters, and great voice acting.. Overall just a great game, that will have you immersed within seconds of putting it in your console.

Right from the start you're watching a several minute long cutscene that will make you laugh, and get you into the spirit. After a while, you'll realize that you've been playing for hours and haven't noticed.. Rockstar has improved the engine since GTA IV came out and it feels authentic.

This is the first game I've ever given a 10 to. If you don't' have it yet, it's well worth the wait.

Oh, and did I mention that the online play is epic too?

What can I say other than Rockstar has done it again. I was hooked immediately. If you love Rockstar's GTA series, you'll love this. The game feels like it was created using the same software used to create GTA IV. Some of you might say that the graphics on the GTA IV engine are starting to show age but make no mistake, this game is absolutely beautiful.

I really felt like a cowboy in this game. Everything from herding cows and horses to bounty hunting and engaging outlaws can be done. You can even become an outlaw yourself, which is difficult at times because bounty hunters will then come after YOU!

The Wild West in this game is truly wild. You'll see animals like deer and bears roaming the wild, but not so many that would seem unrealistic. There will be certain challenges that require you to hunt specific animals and you'll have to actually be patient and seek out the specific species.

The acting in the game is top notch, as to be expected from a Rockstar game. You'll grow to love the characters that you interact with and feel a sense of sadness or shock when some of them are hurt or killed.

Overall, this is the first game that made me want to grab every Achievement/Trophy possible. After i completed the story mode, I still wanted to continue playing the game and having fun. Its that good. Rent it!!
